new tv show and boats

Postby nathan on Fri Apr 03, 2009 6:16 pm

hello all,
just came across this by accident was actually looking to find the timewatch episode on knights. but this show seems good and i was really impressed by the fighting this group do on their long ships. check out the show on the link below:
http://www.history.com/video.do?name=wa ... llepisodes
also on a separate thread does anyone know where i could find the plans for a small long ship with enough space for 6 to 4 rowers?
thanks in advance

Hi Nathan,

Try and get your hands on schematics of a Gokstad færing, it'd be ideal for what you want. One was built this winter at the Viking Ships Museum in Roskilde and launched last weekend. Here's some images of the construction process http://www.vikingeskibsmuseet.dk/index.php?id=1552&L=0
